I hate to tell you this, but it’s not going to work
The Republican party is in desperation mode trying to ingratiate themselves with the African American community. Having spent the last several decades using race-baiting techniques to drum up support with southern whites, they’ve suddenly seen the light and know that, unless they can begin appealing to the black people in American and other non-white groups, they’re destined to become a party that is irrelevant and unelectable.
Which explains this:
The Michigan Republican Party is attempting to co-opt Rosa Parks, champion of civil rights and a hero to the left, and her message of courage in the face of adversity. Their party is anything but pro-civil rights but they want you to forget that and believe an alternate reality.
Good luck with that, folks. It’s against my better judgment but I’ll give you a hint: you have to actually support minority groups in order for them to support you. Just saying that you do isn’t enough. I know, I know, it’s crazy. People actually expect you to be truthful and not to be complete and utter hypocrites. I’m sorry to say it, but you’re just going to have to put away the Blah People rhetoric.
I realize that’s going to make this whole rebranding thing so much more difficult for you given you’re track record and all. Like I said: good luck with that.
